Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 12:48PM

Blustery & Colder

Another cold blast is knocking on the door this afternoon and strikes with vengeance. After a quick temperature boost early, the mercury falls late this afternoon as a strong northwest wind kicks into high gear. A rogue flurry may hitch a ride out of the mountains and over the foothills this afternoon. Temperatures go deep tonight and we'll hang onto the unseasonable chill until Thursday afternoon.

The 2018 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is packed with great photography from the RaysWeather.Com Photo Contest. It has climate information for the entire Parkway and includes pages for November/December 2017 so you can hang it on the wall now. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com or at many retail outlets across the region.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves through western NC promptly this morning. It brings falling afternoon temperatures, a strong northwest wind, and flurries/snow showers to the mountains. A flurry or two may break containment into the foothills this afternoon, but that is all.

Wednesday remains cold as milder air holds off until Thursday. Even then, another quick moving cold front comes through Thursday night knocking temperatures down again Friday.

The weekend is considerably milder as high pressure skirts over the Southeast. Clouds pile-up by Sunday morning ahead of a slow moving frontal zone and we think we can squeeze out a mostly dry Sunday. Light rain develops by Sunday evening and stays in play Monday. This round is all liquid and despite it's longer duration rainfall amounts will be light.
